Nearly 50 years ago, President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the Public Broadcasting Act (November 7, 1967), and since then, television and radio have never been the same. The Act created the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, establishing PBS and NPR as the national distribution networks for public television and radio.
On the Air: 50 Years of Public Broadcasting, brings iconic artifacts from treasured TV and radio shows under one roof.
Visitors may take photos with Sesame Street puppets Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch and Count von Count. Also featured are Mister Rogers’ sweater and sneakers, artwork by The Joy of Painting host Bob Ross and an autoharp used by Garrison Keillor on A Prairie Home Companion.
